    Lol too late, I nearly bought a pair of HD 5850 yesterday, but judging that I won't even get '''2D''' accelerated desktop in Linux, I gave up the chance and went to SLI GTX 460 instead. Couldn't be happier

    and i do not have the money for 1 single 5570 ;-)

    "Couldn't be happier"

    be sure 'happy' and cloused source hardware (for an opensource os) isn't a good friend ;-)

    Happier? Is this sarcasm? You puchased proprietary-only board instead of purchasing board with proprietary drivers for now and opensource later?

    I was in same situation and had to take 4770 instead of 5770.

    "Happy" is when it WORKS, not when it's open source.

    Yes, sure. I am not happy with the open drivers. They still suck. I'm not happy.

    Surely, every person should decide this for themselves?
